Bennett, ‘Bloody’ to play D.C.’s Studio

'Habit of Art' to have U.S. premiere

The U.S. preem of Alan Bennett comedy “The Habit of Art” and a regional production of recent Broadway alum “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” are among the shows lined up for the 2011-12 season at D.C.’s Studio Theater.

Org’s offerings take on an international bent next season under new artistic director David Muse. Its 11-play sked will see five U.S. or world preems of foreign works, including “Habit of Art,” the Bennett play that imagines an encounter between W.H. Auden and Benjamin Britten.

Muse, who succeeded Studio’s founding a.d. Joy Zinoman last September, has said previously he’ll add a new focus to artists and works from overseas.

Schedule also will include the preem of German playwright Roland Schimmelpfennig’s “The Golden Dragon” and British writer Roy Williams’ “Sucker Punch.” Muse will also launch a new Studio Lab series of stripped-down productions of new plays, beginning with the drama “Lungs,” by British playwright Duncan Macmillan.

Also on tap for the subscription series are Gotham vets “Time Stands Still” and “Bachelorette” plus a U.S. visit from Brit troupe 1927 with “The Animals and Children Take to the Street.”

Studio’s non-Equity 2ndStage will present “Bloody Bloody” in a new production from helmer Keith Alan Baker, and the world preem of “Astro Boy and the God of Comics” by Natsu Onoda Power. Studio will also host the London company 1927’s “The Animals and Children Take to the Streets.”
